The following quotes are from the New to Public Health Residency Program beta testing participants’ comments and stakeholder interviews:

“Coming out of nursing school I needed more, especially during a pandemic. Residency programs are not common in public health professions like they are in the hospitals and they are very much needed for public health professionals to feel truly onboarded.”

“I enjoyed the use of different techniques and platforms that were used during the virtual session, which I thought adhered to many different learning styles/preferences. The [synchronous discussion] session felt like a safe environment to discuss any topic and a great way to connect [with others].”

“With a better understanding of the foundation of public health, I can apply this knowledge to my PNCC program and improve services.”
